The Lung Association of Saskatchewan began as the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis League, founded on February 17, 1911.
On February 17, 2011 we turned 100 years old. We are Saskatchewan's oldest health charity!
The slogan “A hundred years … a million lives” reflects the number of people who have had direct contact with our Association. The tuberculosis screening and treatment programs alone literally touched over a million people. Thousands more have been helped by our programs in the area of asthma, COPD, sleep apnea, flu and smoking cessation. Thousands of school children have used our materials to learn how to keep their lungs healthy. Hundreds of thousands of Saskatchewan people have donated time and money to our Association to help people with lung disease and to support research to find cures and better treatments for lung diseases.
